culchiem (4101) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 19, 2012
Bottle no 00760. Dark copper with a lively tan head. Aroma is fruit with some vanilla. Whisky dominates the flavour and the palate, warming fruity with a smooth rounded finish. Very drinkable strong beer, which can be a bit dangerous. slakemythirst (201) - - FEB 14, 2012
Honung, cederträ, sviskon och ja, whisky anas i doften. Mycket kolsyra - måste hällas upp burdust. En häftigt smakupplevelse. Lagom kropp och balansen är fin. Bra att bryggaren använde sig av låglandswhisky...en högländare eller en öwhisky hade troligen sabbat upplevelsen med sin rökighet. EdKing (2640) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2012
Bottle at Chris O’s tasting. Hazy tawny amber colour. Nose is tangy fruity, caramel, bit of sourness, like a Belgian bruin. Nice aroma. Taste is fruity, woody, vanilla woody, quite raw alcohol. Some liquorice on the finish too. harrisoni (19173) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2012
Bottle at Chriso FullersGales Tasting. Hazy amber lasting near white head. Some sweet whisky some sweet orange fruit. Some whisky not keen on the whisky. Some toffee. Some heat on finish that some called sour. Too much alcohol. Hoppy bite on finish. Neeskens (328) - SWEDEN - FEB 10, 2012
Amber with a medium white head. A strange brew that mix the std malty sweet raisiny notes and a stange funky touch...wtf, have someone poured some Rodenbach or Duchesse de Bourgonge in my English Old Ale? Still, not that bad once you get passed the initial surprise.
PalCabral (162) - SWEDEN - FEB 8, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours dark copper with a foamy beige head that never settles much. Discrete flowery yeasty aromas, likable but faint. The beer itself is very hazy, hardly see through, and looks unfiltered like homebrews do. The taste is the reward. Extremely soft, spicy and fruity sweet at the same time, yeast and caramell is a great mix. Not much hops here to guide or dominate. Can’t believe it’s a nine percent ABV, dangerous stuff this. And the palate is very lively for a brittish beer and it really lifts the beer too, old ales with low carbonation can really feel dead in the mouth, but not this one. Well done, Fuller’s! Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 3, 2012
(Bottle) Pours copper orange brown with an airy head. The aroma holds apple cider/apples candy /ginger and apple pie and vanilla ice cream up front with undertones of leather, cheese, caramel, oak/whisky, honey and English esters. The flavour is light sweet and light bitter with fruity, spicy, woodsy and oaky notes as well as honey and vanilla. The mouthfeel is light round, “full” and light tart with a medium carbonation. Light woodsy and fruity finish. Medium bodied. hornblower (2) - colintraive, SCOTLAND - FEB 3, 2012 does not count
found this in the system bolaget off licence where im staying in sweden, well presented and quality looking package. amber coloured with a faint fruit on the nose. very slight whisky taste, malty with nice rounded flavour. impressed considering it is probably the strongest beer i have ever drank! would be interested to know what casks were used as Auchentoshan uses a mixture of american sherry/bourbon casks and french wine casks? holdan (260) - USA - FEB 1, 2012
